Guest Post: All Things Intuition by Darlene Pitts
When I decided to write about intuition, I found my mission in life. And I unknowingly lived it for years. Intuition is our natural ability to sense the truth about people, places, things, and situations without using logic, physical senses, or prior knowledge. I couldn’t keep what I’d recognized and learned about intuition to myself, especially when people asked, “What is intuition? How do I use it?” In my self-published book Let’s Talk Intuition, I answered those questions and many others.
Intuition plays a key role in every area of our lives and informs us in ways beyond academia, logic, and common sense. In my writings, intuition allows me to incorporate several genres: self help, spirituality, inspiration, poetry, comedy, and horror. Yes, horror. Living the intuitive way is often like living in the Twilight Zone spotlighting social issues and unexpected endings. We sense things about our health, finances, and talents. We sense job offers, transportation problems, and sudden deaths. Even when we sleep, our dreams generate more intuitive experiences—literally and symbolically.
In Let’s Talk Intuition, I state, “Each person is born with intuition and his or her own intuitive style.” Seers see images in visions and dreams “out in space” or in their mind’s eye. Sentients perceive information by diverse feelings or sensations within their body. Listeners hear various sounds “out in space” or in their head, throat, or heart. Knowers know information “out of the blue” and without knowing how they know. Tasters taste various substances without putting anything in their mouth. Scentrists smell various scents “out in space” or via their inner nose. Speakers speak abrupt, insightful sayings to others and themselves without thinking what to say. Singers sing sudden, edifying songs to others and themselves without hearing external music. We are a mixture of all of the above, validated by the intuitive messages we receive every day. While writing my book, new intuitive messages arrived while older ones returned to my consciousness. Like lifelong teachers, they wanted to be included to help people understand the different types of intuitive messages communicated. Each provided an excellent story for a corresponding question, such as “How do I know what my intuition tells me is real?” “Can my intuition warn me about danger?” “Is intuition always right?”
Some people recognize they’ve used their intuition since childhood; others, later in life. Either way, being aware when their intuition communicates, trusting it, and acting on its guidance are vital. People often ask, “Why do I ignore my intuition?” The reasons vary per person and per intuitive message. The top five reasons people ignore their intuition are: 1) they doubt their intuitive messages are true, 2) they fear ridicule or rejection from others if they talk about it, 3) they fear the truth, 4) their intuitive messages conflict with their desires, and 5) they rebel against being told what to do even when the advice comes from their own intuition.
Let’s Talk Intuition contains realistic examples and true intuitive experiences. My goals are to empower people and help them know that they’re not alone when they intuitively feel other people’s pains and pleasures, when they intuitively hear disembodied footsteps and voices in their home, when they intuitively know about weather and geological hazards, when they intuitively sing about their true and false friends … and hundreds of other intuitive experiences. All things in life include all things intuition.
How do I trust my intuition? Can my intuition help me reduce stress? How do I use my intuition to find a good relationship? In Let’s Talk Intuition, intuition consultant Darlene Pitts answers these questions and many others clients have asked her over ten years, to show you how quick and easy it is to use your intuition at home, work, school, and play right now. She describes the ways your intuition helps you save money, time, and energy in twenty-eight areas of life, including career, finances, health, and relationships. Included is her three-step process to ask your intuition questions about any life situation and sense accurate answers.
